Who better to mod a pedal than the engineer who invented it?

    In his endless quest for the perfect TS-tone, legendary engineer Susumu Tamura has developed a new, tonally awesome variation on his iconic Tube Screamer mod.

    Using the Ibanez TS-9 as its foundation, the new TS9-TM Tamura-MOD offers a slightly different tonal palette where the midrange has been shifted to a higher frequency range.

    This subtle yet perceptible change accentuates a player’s pick attack, helping to articulate individual notes even with complex chord structures.

    The TS9-TM also passes a bit more clean signal, adding additional clarity to notes.

    The TS9-TM features the same “MagicIC found in Mr. Tamura’s TS808-TM mod.

    After spending three years testing hundreds of different 808 variants, Mr. T determined that this OpAmp is the secret ingredient to the clearest, most authentic TS-tone possible.

    With the Magic IC at its core, Mr. T further fine-tuned the TS9-TM circuit by replacing specific components with higher quality, low-tolerance alternatives. ELNA bi-polar capacitors, KEMET tantalum capacitors and KOA/Speer resistors are used in key positions of the audio circuit to precisely sculpt the tone.

    In addition, Vishay 1N914 diodes were used in the pedal’s clipping stage. These current-production diodes offer an alternate drive signature to either the stock TS9 or the TS808-TM mod.

    Lastly, a key resistor in the output stage of the pedal was changed to provide a more even frequency response and less coloration when the pedal is bypassed.

    The TS9-TM is another testament to the versatility of the Tubescreamer circuit as well as to the ingenuity of its designer.

    PLEASE NOTE: Due to the limited nature of this pedal, long lead-times, and transaction fees a 20% restocking fee will be charged on all canceled orders.

    Wow! TS9-TM

    This pedal is great!
    Was shocked when I plugged it in honestly, if you like more mids , it up your alley. Lows are nice and not overbearing . Highs have articulation. This pedal is great in low and high gain applications. I personally hear a even saturation in gain applications note are heard .

    Love it! That’s why I bought two.
